When something really bothers you, it probably really bothers you because it’s true. That’s an indicator it’s something you actually have to fix.”

QUESTION: Coach–I’ve been feeling stuck in my workouts for the last couple of months and I haven’t broken any personal bests.
I don’t think I’m overtraining but maybe I am. I also feel like I’m hungry all the time. How can I get back on track?
Also make sure you’re getting good nutrition and hydration–sometimes if you feel hungry you’re dehydrated.
If you’re not sure you are eating like you should, check out my Navy SEAL Nutrition Tips article.

QUESTION: Hi, Coach. I recently joined your membership and I’ve been doing the workouts I can or scaling when I can’t but I’m getting blisters on my hands from the pull-ups.
Do I just need to deal until my hands heal up and get tougher? Do you have some tips for helping the healing process?
ANSWER: Your hands will take a beating for awhile and they will toughen up.
But you also do need to take care of them because you want to build calluses not more blisters which can get worse. Check out tips here.
